Installing graphic drivers manually isn't the best idea. Now you know why. :) Use the one from repository unless you have very good reason not to. And you can also report a bug about this weird behavior. –  user31389 Feb 16 at 19:45

Click in the dash, search for software and updates, go to 'install additional drivers' and choose a proprietary driver for your system.

proprietary drivers are old, and i have the same problem with them as well. –  Hayet Mahmud Feb 16 at 20:12
    
try adding another user account to ubuntu log in with that see if you have the same problem. –  Gary Wheadon Feb 16 at 20:17

Try this open terminal ctrl+alt+t and type in the following commands then reboot. gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme '' gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme '' gconftool-2 --set --type string /apps/metacity/general/theme '' –  Gary Wheadon Feb 16 at 20:55
